Dems worried about Kennedy's seat?



Dear supporter,

You need to know this: Polls are tightening in Massachusetts, and America's future hangs on getting Martha Coakley elected to Ted Kennedy's seat on Jan. 19. Winning this special election means passing health care reform and the rest of President Obama's agenda.

American Future Fund, the guys who brought you the Swift Boat attacks against decorated war veteran John Kerry, are up with a $400,000 buy, smearing Coakley. She's being outspent, and a new poll shows that the right wing money is doing the trick. Republican Scott Brown is within striking distance.

Keeping this seat blue is critical. Coakley is the 60th vote needed to pass health care and the rest of President Obama's agenda. As Massachusetts' first woman senator, she will help advance Kennedy's legacy - fighting for equal rights, a strong economy, and our families and communities.  Without her vote, health care won't happen.

The DSCC provides a crucial role in close races like this one. When the right wing whips out their wallets and starts attacking our candidates, we level the playing field. We fight back. We get every Democrat out to the polls. And we make the difference. You make the difference.

This is not just any old Senate seat. This is the seat Ted Kennedy held for 47 years. Republicans would love nothing more than stopping health care by winning this race. Ceding his seat to the forces of obstruction is simply not an option. Not today, not on Jan. 19, not ever.

Sincerely,

J.B. Poersch
